Indonesia, an island archipelago that's made up of more than 17,000 volcanic islands thanks to being situated on the infamous "Ring of Fire'. This gives Indonesia the perfect fertile soil to grow coffee.
Brought over by the Dutch during the early 19th century, Indonesia now has become one of the big names in the coffee producing world.
The coffee is grown in the northern part of Sumatra, Gayo referring to the ethnic group that produces coffee. Every coffee is hand-picked before it is sent to the pulper to separate the beans and pulp. The drying process is where the flavours develop over the 15-20 days of being dried on a raised drying bed.
All our coffee beans are roasted on the FROCO FR15-I. A machine that gives us a ton of information like the ability to track temperatures of the beans, drum, and airflow just to name a few. This means we obtain and are able to monitor with a lot of information to ensure we can roast coffee with a high level of consistency.
We pack our whole beans coffee and ground coffee in a 250g airtight packaging. With a smaller packaging, it'll help to keep the coffee fresh and it prevents exposing a large amount of coffee to the environment which can change the flavours of the coffee.
We don't use any flavourings in our products/coffee. What you see on the packaging and our website are taste notes, our ways of depicting nuances of flavours in the coffee beans. So don't worry if you don't get the taste notes, as every taste buds bring a slightly different outcome.
